One of Those Weeks...
The old proverbial social calendar was totally filled up this week. We did our usual trivia night at Oz on Thursday (won 1st place!), and followed that up with a celebration at the Tavern- complete with drop in visits from one of Michael's co-workers, and also from the waitress that waited on us on our first real date! We were both off on Friday, so it was ok to stay up late and have a good time for a change.
After lots of sleeping in late, we got dressed up and had dinner at Le Cordon Bleu with my family. We were getting together to celebrate my brother Joel's birthday. We had happy hour and gift time at Mom's house and then headed to LCB for a great dinner. Happy Birthday, Joel-- damn you're getting old!
On Saturday we had another opportunity to get dressed up~~ Michael surprised me with tickets to see Les Miserables at the Fox. We had a tapas dinner at Mitra and then walked a couple of blocks to the most incredible show ever. I've seen Les Mis at least five times, and each time is better than the time before. The soundtrack is on my Ipod, and we listen to it a lot, especially in the car when we're on a road trip. Michael and I both know our roles and sing our parts to each song. It was hard to sit in the audience and force ourselves not to sing out loud, although we both caught ourselves mouthing the words a few times!
On today's agenda~~ we're having brunch with some friends that are visiting from Columbus, followed by a birthday party for our friend and neighbor, Sophie. It should be a lot of fun.
